Want to lower my car about 1.5 inches, but have no idea what I'd need for a drop, other than springs and probably a pan hard bar.

Post suggestions and setup ideas. I have 19 inch tires.

If that is all you want to do is drop it then you will need this...

SR Performance Mustang Lowering Springs - Coupe 53151 (05-14 GT, V6) - Free Shipping 53151

and this...

Ford Racing Mustang GT500 Style Strut Mount Upgrade M-18183-C (05-14 All) - Free Shipping M-18183-C

You might want to add a panhard bar later...

Realigns your rear. When you lower it pushes one side out further than the other

Lower it, then drive around about a month to let everything settle into place. Then get a pan hard bar and have the car alined.
